Bush's Buddies
The Pioneers: George W. Bush's $100,000 Club
George W. Bush's fundraising centers around his network of Pioneers, each of whom has raised at least $100,000. As of July 15, the Bush campaign has released the names of 212 Pioneers*. TPJ has identified, researched and profiled each of these individuals, whom Bush relies upon as his leading conduits of political cash.
We Finally Got Our Frankenstein... and He Was In a Spider Hole! -- by Michael Moore
America used to like Saddam. We LOVED Saddam. We funded him. We armed him. We helped him gas Iranian troops.
 
The Neo-Conservatives and the Global Order-August 15, 2004-By: Stefan Halper and Jonathan Clarke
America Alone levels a broad indictment against the Bush administration, which in the name of the war on terror has launched the Iraq war, mounted an assault on personal liberties at home, engaged in a purposeful deceit of the media and the public (both of which suspended any critical judgment) and, above all, has inflicted terrible damage on U.S. moral authority and international legitimacy. The chief culprits for the authors are the neocons, who are depicted as conspirators who hijacked American foreign policy.
 
Tom DeLay's Amoral Code
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who is hands-down one of the most corrupt politicians in the United States. "The Hammer" – DeLay got that nickname because he runs the US House of Representatives with an iron fist – has allegedly bribed his GOP colleagues to win their votes for legislation that he desperately wanted to pass in the House. He has engaged in quid pro quos with corporations seeking legislative favors, and violated campaign finance laws in Texas during the 2002 state house election contests.
 
Tom Delay's New World Order, "I Am the Government"
The story I heard goes like this: Tom DeLay lights up a stogie in a restaurant, and a waiter comes over and says, "I'm sorry, sir, but this is a government building, and no smoking is permitted." To which Mr. DeLay, House majority leader extraordinaire, if I may resort to Freedom English in honor of Tom's until now secret admiration of Gustave Flaubert, barks, "I am the government."
 
Elliott Abrams: It's Back!
Bush the Second has tapped a number of Reagan/Bush alums who were involved in Iran/contra business for plum jobs: Colin Powell, Richard Armitage, Otto Reich and John Negroponte. But Abrams's appointment--should it come to pass--would mark the most generous of rehabilitations. Not only did Abrams plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of lying to Congress about the Reagan Administration's contra program, he was also one of the fiercest ideological pugilists of the 1980s, a bad-boy diplomat wildly out of sync with Bush's gonna-change-the-tone rhetoric.
 
O'Reilly: Iraqis are Primitive and Should be Bombed Again!
"I have no respect for them. I think that they're a prehistoric group. What we can do is bomb the living daylights out of them. They're just people who are primitive." -Bill O'Reilly
 
Top Bush supporter funds attacks on Kerry's war record-August 15, 2004-By: Scott Gold
Robert J. Perry, the main financier behind the effort to discredit Senator John F. Kerry's military record, is the most prolific political donor in Texas. Perry has helped bankroll the widespread success of Republican candidates here, has long-standing ties to many close associates of President Bush, and has contributed to Bush's last four campaigns.
 
Catholic publisher quits Bush campaign-David D. Kirkpatrick
Deal W. Hudson, the publisher of the conservative Roman Catholic journal Crisis and the architect of a Republican effort to court Catholic voters, said he is resigning as an adviser to the Bush campaign because of a Catholic newspaper's investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct. The accusations involve a student at a college where he once taught.
 
Ken Lay
 
Despite President's Denials, Enron & Lay Were Early Backers of Bush
President George W. Bush revised history yesterday when he said that Enron CEO Ken Lay "was a supporter of Ann Richards in my [gubernatorial] run in 1994." While Richards received $19,500 from Enron sources in that campaign, according to the Dallas Morning News, Bush received far more Lay and Enron money.
 
Prosecutors seeking Lay indictment
Federal prosecutors plan to ask a grand jury to indict Ken Lay on charges relating to the last few months he was at the helm of Enron as the company spiralled into its stunning 2001 collapse.
 
Enron Ex-Chief Lay Indicted, to Surrender
Former Enron Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive Kenneth Lay, who grew the company into an energy trading giant that became the ultimate symbol of corporate wrongdoing and greed, was indicted on Wednesday and said he would surrender to authorities.
 
Kenneth Lay-Pioneer Profiles: George W. Bush's $100,000 Club
The $550,025 that the Enron Corp. gave Bush over the years makes it his No. 1 career patron, according to the Center for Public Integrity. “Virtually every … aspect of Enron’s operations is overseen by the federal government,” a ’96 Dallas Morning News story noted. Not surprisingly, this global natural gas giant and its top executive are big political contributors who keep revolving doors whirling.
 
TODAY’S JOLT-G.W. Bush = Ken Lay
JANUARY 24, 2002, The reporters in Washington all want to know about President George W. Bush’s long-standing relationship with Lay and whether Lay parlayed that relationship into government help in keeping his complex energy-trading firm alive.
 
Kenneth L. Lay (with Linda P.) March 5, 2001
In addition to being one of the single largest financial backers of George W. Bush's political career, Ken Lay can count himself among the president's closest friends. Letters written while Bush was governor of Texas and obtained by Mother Jones reveal that the Enron Corp. chairman regularly wrote Bush and called upon the governor for favors.
 
Bush and Ken Lay: Slip Slidin' Away, By Sam Parry February 6, 2002
George W. Bush is trying to rewrite the history of his and his family’s relationship with Enron Corp.’s disgraced former Chairman Kenneth Lay. So far, Bush has enjoyed fairly good success as the U.S. news media has largely accepted the White House spin. But the reality, as established by a wealth of historical record and recent disclosures, is that Lay and Enron were instrumental in Bush’s rise to power – and Bush played an important behind-the-scenes role in advancing Enron’s aggressive deregulation agenda, which helped the energy trader ascend to its lofty perch as the seventh-biggest U.S. company.
 
James R. Bath
 
The Ancestor of the Iran/Contra Scandal
". . . Bath had told me that he had used Saudi money to fund George Bush Junior’s start up in the Energy business."
 
James R. Bath-Wikipedia Bio
James R. Bath was a former director of BCCI, and part owner of Arbusto Energy. Arbusto was formed by George W. Bush, with whom Bath served as a member of the Texas Air National Guard. Like Bush, Bath was suspended from flying status in 1972 for failing to accomplish his annual medical examination.
 
More on George and Drugs
How can it possibly be that both George Bush and James Bath were suspended from the same unit within a month of one another for the same reason? There has to be a connection. Besides the fear of a military drug test, is it possible that Bush couldn't attend at the National Guard because he was under a court order to do charity work? Was Bath involved in the same incident? Shouldn't this be investigated?

Stealing Home
George W. Bush loves baseball. And why not? After all, baseball has been very good to the governor. When it comes to power, the governor is a true triple-threat. Consider his record: (1) His initial baseball investment of $600,000 carries the current potential of a 2,500 percent return. (2) Through savvy P.R. and political maneuvering, he and his partners have persuaded a city and the state to directly subsidize a facility for their business. (3) Not content with taxpayer subsidies, he and his fellow owners have also successfully used the power of government to take land from other private citizens so it could be used for their own private purposes.
 
Insider Deals Catch Up with Bush
One of Bush’s fishiest moves as a businessman who failed upward in the oil industry occurred in 1990, when Bush was on the board of directors and the audit committee of Dallas-based Harken Energy.
 
George W. Bush's Dubious Friends
The article below by the authoritative Intelligence Newsletter outlines George W. Bush's business contacts with the bin Laden family when he was in Texas oil and politics. A former business partner "who helped to finance his campaign at the time and later bought into two of Bush's companies,.... represented the financial interests of the Saudi Arabian sheikh Salem Bin Laden in the United States. Father of Osama Bin Laden"
 
Bush's Former Oil Company Linked To bin Laden Family
When President George W. Bush froze assets connected to Osama bin Laden, he didn't tell the American people that the terrorist mastermind's late brother was an investor in the president's former oil business in Texas. He also hasn't leveled with the American public about his financial connections to a host of shady Saudi characters involved in drug cartels, gun smuggling, and terrorist networks.
 
BUSH WATCH... BUSH MONEY
"[Texas] Observer readers are familiar with much of the ground [Charles] Lewis covers in The Buying of the President 2000 [Avon Press], including accounts of how he:
made $15 million off the Texas Rangers deal with the help of $135 million in corporate welfare from Arlington taxpayers;
took $4.5 million from the business interests clamoring for "tort reform" and rewarded them with laws that make it harder to sue irresponsible businesses; and
invited oil industry executives to develop a do-nothing public relations response to the "grandfathered" air pollution problem in Texas.

Bush's Israeli Lobby Advisors
It is very important to know the identity of these pro-Israeli officials within the administration in order to understand who is behind this war-mongering and realizing that is serving Israeli interests, not American interests.
 
World Focus: Who, and what, is behind America's recurrent drive to war?
Defending his government's decision to invade Iraq on entirely spurious grounds, US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld declared, "I know in my heart and brain that America ain't what's wrong in the world."
War isn't an aberration, the policy of hawks and neo-conservatives in power. And the reason why is war is good for business.

The Orwellian Olsens

In Bushworld It's their reality. We just live and die in it. In Bushworld, you get to strut around like a tough military guy and paint your rival as a chicken hawk, even though he's the one who won medals in combat and was praised by his superior officers for fulfilling all his obligations.
